He was a real good dude. He supported my🎵. More than many cats here in my own city. He would invite me over 2 jam. But, my social anxiety (as of late..) azz never went. But, we’d text often. I’ve played on 2 LP’s of his. Was almost on that Tour. Me & D.R.A.M.
This is how cool @MacMiller was.
No ego. No funny style vibes. Just G.
These text were related to his latest song “What’s The Use” & the making of it 2 the finish line 🏁.
The last text was after his car accident.
I cannot imagine what Mac Miller’s family and loved ones are feeling right now. I send love to his family, his friends, and his fans. pic.twitter.com/k32Em8kct1

One thing that impressed me about Mac Miller was his dedication to becoming a focused musician. He popped off frat rap early on and could’ve stuck with that, but he put his head down, focused on his craft, and gained respect from the best.

I dont know what to say Mac Miller took me on my second tour ever. But beyond helping me launch my career he was one of the sweetest guys I ever knew. Great man. I loved him for real. Im completely broken. God bless him.

Mac opened his home to many up and coming LA creatives when he moved here in 2012. Entire projects were recorded in his home studio by artists such as Vince Staples and Ab Soul and others. LA will be forever grateful, Rest Easy Mac. https://t.co/O9SDh9JLiY

Over the years I only ever spoke to Mac Miller when he passed through my radio show or backstage at one of his shows…then I find out about his passing in the middle of my radio show tonight😢 He was a true MC, always ready to freestyle.
